"Assuming you're not completely born stupid, i assume you will realize
that IN ORDER to" write an effective email that conveys some idea or 
argument, it is extremely helpful to utilize some form of etiquette or 
at the very least, self-restraint in your writing so we all don't stop 
reading your emails.  In fact, while it's not a terribly great book 
IMHO, it might still help to read "How to Win Friends and Influence 
People."  Seems like you have enough time on your hands to write 
near-to-incoherent emails on this list and program near-to-impossible 
applications for GPUs, so perhaps if you can steal a little time from 
one or the other you can finish it in a day or so.

But admittedly, perhaps requesting etiquette from you is truly an 
unthinkable thing to do.  Hence your boggled state of mind.
